Despite the best efforts of both the Republic of Aquitaine Navy (RAN) and the Freiburg Empire, pirates remain a problem for smaller communities, away from the main starlanes. Due to Jessica Keller's success on her previous mission to cause problems for the Freiburg Empire, the head of the senate requests Jessica's assistance on a very special assignment: pirate hunting. What sort of mischief can Jessica and her crew cause in a backwater system? Particularly when given the full backing of the senate? "Queen of the Pirates"—the second novel in The Chronicles of Jessica Keller—mixes interstellar politics with heart-racing grand space battles. Be sure to read both the first book about Jessica, "Auberon" as well as the continuing adventures in, "Last of the Immortals" and "Goddess of War".
